The Surgery

Our main site at Holt is a modern, airy, purpose-built Surgery with a hybrid Pharmacy on site. We have two branch sites in the nearby villages of Melton Constable and Blakeney. Although busy, we are a relaxed, welcoming and harmonious Practice.

Role

Sessions will consist of a mix of on the day minor illness appointments and regular chronic disease management and practice nurse appointments. Slot times are generous and vary from 10 – 30 mins depending on the appointment type and sessions include protected tea breaks and admin time. Our Practice Nurses work across all three of our sites (Holt, Melton Constable, Blakeney) and there is open door support available from our duty doctors and experienced Nurse Manager at all times.
